So far, I haven't seen this one debunked. It's a classic and it looks very convincing....
The person who took it was visiting Grandma at the rest home....
Posted Image
....behind Grandma, stands a gentleman who was neither seen during the taking of the photo or anywhere at anytime during the visit....
Posted Image
....and it looks just like the long-deceased Granddad....
Posted Image
....The grandmother passed away not long afterwards....
Posted Image
....What do you think?

I've always thought/hoped it was a legitimate photo of a spirit.

I dunno about this one. There is blockiness/artifacts all over it, as well as around his head. haha has no one noticed the Grim Reaper in the trees right above the red van in the background? :anim_63:

Oh, yeah!

Holy marshmallows! I see that! It's likely paredolia but it's unusually detailed.

On another note, I also see a giant gray-haired guy crouching and shooting a bow & arrow....

Excellent topic, Spukikitty!

Do we know who the responsible party is for this picture? I would love to make a YouTube video of it. And now that Vlawde found the Grim Reaper hiding within, I can make it even more interesting. ;)  

I'll be releasing 10 paranormal videos next week (hopefully) and I hope to include this one.  :)
I've actually wondered about this photo since I was first introduced to it.

Good outlining of the figures SpukiKitty.... can I use those in the video?

I have no doubt that the man in the photo of Grandma is her deceased husband. The pictures of him that accompany  the shot are clear. What I am wondering is was the shot taken perhaps when he was still alive and no one noticed he was in the photo untill much latter. The photo could have become mixed in a box of recent photos, which of course would not be expected for hi to appear, having passed some time before.

Taking the poster's word for when the picture was taken, along wth further evidence in the pictures of the man prior to his death is strong evidence. They have backed their claim with comparison prictures, something people do not often do with claimed pictures of the paranormal. This is a possible!

That Grim Reaper is a hoot! There is an elf to the far left near the top. Ah, pareidolia!

God Bless

Graves

Sure!
The bow & arrow guy may be just a quasi-jokey thing, though but you can point out the (possibly) coincidental Matrix-Reaper.

I believe the story is that he died before she went to the home.

Yes. That's it. He was already deceased when this photo was taken.

I would not be able to debunk this one, my expertise is not at a high enough level :) Great photo - looks very real to me! And I definitely didn't notice the Grim Reaper haha :D

I believe Graves is right in his post.  The picture could have been taken while the man was still around and probably just got mixed up with ones that were taken after he passed away.

There are tons of bald guys on this planet. Comparing them to each other will yield similar results.

It's no ghost. It's a guy legitimately standing there behind the woman. It just made for a more interesting story to say it was her dead husband. I always take stories with such infamous taglines as "he was not seen during the taking of the photo nor anywhere else that day" with a grain of salt. That's hearsay.

Yeah the Grim Reaper is definitely the clincher :yes: :yes: :no:

The sun angle looks right for just some guy being there and the blockiness is only around the face on the right so I think it could just be artifacting from a scan or some digital foobar.

That said this is one of those cases where I think the lovely meaning of what it could be far outweighs the need to figure out an explanation .. it's Grandpa :)

Cool! Make it!

I still feel it's genuine. It's worthy to be seen.

I already started, Spuki.... thanks to all your legwork, I can now begin adding a bit of cinematic touch to the mix..  :)
BTW, it reminds me of the little girl with the space guy behind her. Does anyone know where that discussion is on the forums?

About the girl and the space guy...it turned out to be her mom looking overly washed out with light.

I found some stuff on "Grandpa's Ghost".....

This one examines the photo (albeit a bit skeptical but not making judgement either way) AND notices the shrouded "Grim Reaper" figure as well!....

Hey, Jim; Tell me when the video's done. I want to see it.
